Do #23 as well. Then I will check it. Afterwards you can test the new boot menu entry by doing a reboot. Of course only do a real "factory reset" if in real trouble!

(boot menu will show menu options for 5 seconds. Afterwards it start the default one.... win7)
bcdedit/enum all
I did not understand this part?
Should I run ---- bcdedit/enum all ?

We did make a new ramdisk entry pointing to driver on P:
We did make a new winpe entry that's using that ramdisk. It is kind of a copy that's in p:\boot\bcd default entry.
New boot entry is in bootmenu on boot.

Bootmenu is in the 100MB "system reserved" partition.

Even if C is totally corrupted you can boot to restore to factory settings. But not if.... harddrive is faulty because of hardware failure.

bcdedit output (boot menu) seems to be fine. Does it work the way you want? Also works after "set id=27" ?
